Alabama vs. Arkansas: W 28-14
This one is based on a LOT of if / thens: If we don't turnover the ball and IF the secondary performs as expected, we win this by 2 touchdowns as the Razorbacks are throwing it. Their loss of Kniles Davis was huge so expect the Hogs to hurl the pigskin 70% of the time. I just don't see that much opportunity for our secondary as being a bad thing. I do expect a couple of TDs from them, but I also expect some picks and good field position for us.
Our O-line will continue to frustrate as rushing will be spotty until the second half. I expect Arky to stack the box and jump the short routes forcing McCarron to make some difficult decisions. AJ will definitely grow up or have a melt down this game (I'm banking on the former).
LSU vs. West Virginia: W 21-9
I know this is an away game for the Tigers, but I just don't see West Virginia getting a touchdown against their D. They'll flirt with the red zone, but expect much of the same from LSU's run-and-smash approach - which will work AGAIN.
UPSET Special - Vandy vs. South Carolina: W 21-17
South Carolina will get bitten by their sloppy play this time around. Vandy's confidence is sailing and the Gamecocks won't take this game seriously until the train is already off the tracks.
